American Photography

America’s vast expanses, everyday culture, social landscapes, and urban metropolises: this exhibition centers of American iconography’s post-1945 renewal. Exaggeratedly idealized landscapes were replaced by everyday motifs that had previously been considered unworthy of portrayal. Photographers took road trips and created series portraying American society in a critical light. In capturing the dynamic of big cities, the tendency was to employ a pictorial language that was spontaneous and snapshot-like. And in a contrasting approach, other works involved the staging of elaborate film-like tableaux that served to grapple with photographic reality and illusion as well as with societal developments.

Selected photographers:
Diane Arbus | Philip-Lorca diCorcia | William Eggleston | Lee Friedlander | Nan Goldin | Ray K. Metzker | Lisette Model | Cindy Sherman | Stephen Shore | Joel Sternfeld | Garry Winogrand.
